Does Stealth Hitch Hidden Receiver Require Trimming Fascia on 2019 Volvo XC40?


A question about hitches for my 2019 Volvo XC40. I like the 76245 hitch and am not worried about the install but I see I have to cut the bumper fascia. Since this is a lease, I would rather not do that. I see you also have a SH77FR. Two questions about this one. First, does it also require cutting of the fascia? Second, it looks like it might be a little loose. Does the for the receiver tighten when ed? On the video it does not look like it. I hate when the bike rack wobbles around as I drive. Thanks,

The Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # SH77FR does not require any trimming or cutting of the fascia. The receiver does tighten when locked and there is little movement in the receiver when installed. There is always some movement in bike racks, but there will be slightly more noticeable movement than when being used with a standard welded hitch receiver like # 76245.

The designed shape of the Stealth Receiver will mitigate any significant movement so safety is not an issue when using a hitch mounted bike rack or other accessory.
